1908 Perth Half Sovereign PCGS AU55

Obverse: Edward VII

Reverse: St George & Dragon

A premium example of this scarce date.

The longer they spend in circulation, Australian gold coins develop a dusty rose or reddish patina. This is particularly the case with half sovereigns struck by the Perth Mint in the early 1900’s.

It seems that the more the surface of a coin wears away, the more of the copper in the alloy becomes evident.

This particular example has strong detail in the beard, hair and ear of the King, as well as in the rider and dragon on the reverse.

Not only that, as the images here show, it retains a great deal of the original straw-yellow patina that all of these coins had when they were first struck.
